1. Casino Royale DVD Special Features Update

    By Devin Zydel on 2007-01-27

    CBn had previously reported with details on the special features listing for the upcoming DVD release of Casino Royale.

    Included in this listing were a few documentaries and featurettes and Chris Cornell’s ‘You Know My Name’ music video. This left many Bond fans expecting more; a commentary at the least. Unfortunately, DVD Active reports this will not be the case.

    The special features listing for the two-disc DVD of Casino Royale is:

    • Becoming Bond: An intimate look at how Daniel Craig became the newest James Bond
    • James Bond For Real: A look at Casino Royale‘s action and stunts
    • Bond Girls Are Forever: A look at the leading ladies of the film
    • Chris Cornell ‘You Know My Name’ Music Video

    Previous reports indicated the DVD would also include a ‘Death In Venice’ featurette as well as five news wraps, but these appear not be to included. Back cover art (with the special features listing) can be viewed here.

    Unless there are further announcements regarding the special features, it appears that the Casino Royale DVD will be the first in the James Bond series to not feature an audio commentary.

    The initial DVD release of Die Another Day contained over seven hours of special features, including two seperate audio commentaries: one with Michael G. Wilson and Lee Tamahori and the other with Pierce Brosnan and Rosamund Pike. According to the promotional flyer for Casino Royale, the DVD will contain only ’90 minutes of extras.’
